COLLEGE 

A Four -Year, Coeducational 
Liberal -Arts College 





The Challenge To Youth 

If a person could choose his time to be 
born no-one could choose a more exciting 
and challenging age than our young college 
people face. It has been suggested that 85% 
of the things that will be in use twenty years 
from today have not yet been invented or 
designed. The religious, social, economic, 
political and moral implications of this fact 
are awesome. Some minds and spirits will be 
involved in creating new things, and others 
in developing new ideas and applying them 
to the life of our times. Revolutionary days 
are ahead and these days will be better than 
any man has ever known. Florida Presby- 
terian College has as its basic purpose the 
preparation of individuals who will take part 
in and reap the benefits of that tomorrow. 

Students at this college are at the same 
time persons, scholars and citizens. As per- 
sons each will be given the opportunity for 
individual development and will be encour- 
aged to achieve his highest potential. As 
scholars each will be concerned with truth ; 
its understanding, analysis and transmission. 
As citizens each will be encouraged to live 
out the role of responsible commitment to 
the best ideals of man in community. 



The life of the members of the Florida 
Presbyterian College community is accented 
by two significant concepts — freedom and 
values. Only among free people can the learn- 
ing process really flourish. Here there is no 
sin in having a new idea and no safety in 
giving lip service to an old idea. Education 
is a refining process through which the mind 
and spirit are one and at the same time 
liberated and captured. Men ai*e free when 
moral and spiritual values form the basis of 
judgment and commitment. Because a col- 
lege student's search for truth must leave 
no area in eclipse, students at Florida Pres- 
byterian College will be given the oppor- 
tunity to understand the values by which 
man has lived and to strengthen or develop 
his own personal value standards. 

Young people, their parents, counselors, 
and the friends of our college are earnestly 
invited to consider the program defined here- 
in as it implements the foregoing philosophy. 

Florida Presbyterian College welcomes 
any qualified student.

To Open Horizons 

Liberal arts, so called because their study 
liberates men and fits them for a place in 
a free society, means opened horizons. The 
central concern of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege is to lead her students to deeper insight, 
comprehension, and understanding of men, 
of our universe, and of the relations between 
the two. Through superior students, experi- 
mentation, and Christian community, Florida 
Presbyterian College plants in her students 
a desire for knowledge and a love of wisdom 
and invites them to the satisfactions which 
the persistent pursuit of such ideals may 
afford. 



Outstanding Students 

Florida Presbyterian College actively 
seeks outstanding students. Trusting that 
our leaders tomorrow are the better students 
of today, Florida Presbyterian College trains 
them to be good leaders and to seek and to 
assume leadership. Certain kinds of curri- 
culum and methods of teaching are possible 
and appropriate only with outstanding stu- 
dents. While Florida Presbyterian College 
has few rigid entrance requirements, it ex- 
pects of her prospective students consider- 
able attainment in academic subjects. In 
addition to scholarly achievement, students 
should display unusual breadth of interest 
and excellence of character conducive to the 
orderly transition from secondary school to 
college. Young men and women must be eager 
to learn to grow physically, intellectually, and 
spiritually. Above all, they must be ready to 
accept much of the responsibility for their 
own learning. 



Living Research 

Florida Presbyterian College exists to 
prove to the world that the minimum or 
average need not be the norm in education 
(or thinking) and to test the proposition that 
education can be both liberal and Christian. 
It adopts experimental attitudes in attempt- 
ing to reach its goals through unique but 
carefully considered means. 

We are engaged in living research in 
higher education, not merely in developing 
something we already have. The general di- 
rection of our research is to discover how 
students can most skillfully learn to make 
evaluations. Description and analysis are not 
sufficient, we believe, for moral education. 
They cannot be dispensed with: they are 
necessary in the search for truth. But the 
search for truth cannot stop with them. 
Truth requires judgment and choice based 
upon moral presuppositions. The formula- 
tions of standards of judgment as a conscious 
intellectual activity and the habitual judg- 
ment of such standards are an indispensable 
part of education. We do not presume that 
Florida Presbyterian College is the .first col- 
lege to assume the necessity of a moral end 
of education, but we are experimental in 
trying to find out how best such an end can 
be realized. 




A Christian Community 

In still a third way we are probably more 
experimental than in any other: we are try- 
ing to find out what a Christian college is! 
Those who have studied the idea longest and 
hardest agree that people in general have 
no clear-cut idea of what a Christian college 
is or should be and that disagreement is to 
be expected. Still we are all united in believ- 
ing that there should be a college in which 
the presuppositions are avowedly Christian. 
Truth, freedom, and Christianity have in- 
evitable connections whether in the search, 
the heritage, or the government of a Chris- 
tian college. And we have a vision of a 
Christian community which is not monastic 
in separating dedicated persons from the 
world but which prepares dedicated people 
to go back into the world and witness through 
the exercise of their intellect. This witness, 
we pray, will prove to the world that a 
Christian education best fits people for life, 
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for 
others. 




A private, coeducational, liberal-arts col- 
lege, founded and maintained by the Pres- 
byterian Churches, both U.S. and U.P.U.S.A. 
acting co-operatively, Florida Presbyterian 
College acknowledges as primary in the 
search for truth a knowledge of God and of 
ourselves as revealed in Jesus Christ. The 
College examines and nurtures beliefs and 
recognizes faith as a probing and vitalizing 
force. Dedicated to the inspiration of a strong 
sense of Christian obligation for involvement 
and leadership in local and global events, the 
College is equally dedicated to the proposi- 
tion that its doors are open to qualified 
students of all faiths. 



Motivation 

Florida Presbyterian College thus has a 
deep concern for its students. It seeks to stim- 
ulate growth — the student's realization of 
individual potential — and encourages indi- 
vidual attainment. With the fundamental 
aim of the College community to make stu- 
dents aware of the seriousness of their voca- 
tion, students, throughout their undergradu- 
ate careers, exercise their powers of decision 
on the basis of informed and thoughtful 
judgment consciously pursued. 



Learning is Personal 

Florida Presbyterian College is a unified 
academic community in which each mem- 
ber's recognition and security depend on his 
freedom to pursue scholarship and to asso- 
ciate with others. Here learning is personal 
and widely varied because of the realization 
that knowledge comes from others of dif- 
fering as well as similar backgrounds and 
pursuits. We employ both conventional and 
unconventional methods in the search for 
truth to provide insights and skills which 
train and excite our students' intellects and 
emotions for creative and imaginative ex- 
pression. 

In guiding our students' development, we 
afford them innumerable opportunities to 
learn emotional independence, the necessity 
for individual questioning, and the right and 
duty of personal judgment. Thus, Florida 
Presbyterian College cherishes freedom of 
thought. For its entire academic community 
— students, faculty, staff — the College insists 
upon i*espect for human dignity and indivi- 
dual moral responsibility supported by the 
belief that humanity was created for one 
great co-operation. Thus the College con- 
fronts students with the conflicts of cultures, 
affording them an opportunity to intensify 
their own search for meaningful and applic- 
able values. Students learn to arrive at new 
and broader understandings of themselves 
and their studies in relation to culture, crea- 
tion, and the ultimate. 

Prospective students, regardless of major 
field of study and plans beyond the under- 
graduate years, will find in Florida Presby- 
terian College educational experiences basic 
to lasting satisfaction, personal integration, 
and social usefulness. The program of liberal 
arts, complete in itself, is eminently practical, 
regardless of a student's intended vocation 
or avocation. In addition, the College provides 
specific preprofessional training for the min- 
istry, medicine, law, education, business, and 
graduate work in specialized fields. 

In short, Florida Presbyterian College 
aims to provide life-long attitudes of always 
seeking deeper, fuller comprehension, of al- 
ways seeking the whole view, and of always 
following courses of action to extend capa- 
bilities and responsibilities for personal and 
corporate betterment.

A Fresh Start 

Founded in the tradition of the great 
American liberal-arts schools, Florida Pres- 
byterian College has been singularly blessed 
from its beginning. The founders, trustees, 
staff, and faculty have together pursued a 
policy of experimentation. This policy has 
been not to cast out what has proved suc- 
cessful in education of the highest quality 
but rather with a fresh start to develop and 
adopt new approaches, programs, facilities, 
and procedures. Already the curriculum and 
the permanent campus, planned by architects 
and educators, have captured widespread at- 
tention and enthusiasm among those con- 
cerned with meeting the vastly increasing 
demands for higher education in the United 
States for superior students. 

To carry out a college program of the 
first order efficiently and at a minimum cost, 
students themselves undertake independent 
learning during their four years. The pro- 
gram generates independence of thinking and 



study to produce fuller understanding, to 
inspire personal initiative, and develop accep- 
tance of responsibility. The entire program 
emphasizes independent study, under faculty 
guidance and review, and elicits and main- 
tains individual responsibility through spe- 
cific means. 

Core Courses 

To promote a community of learners and 
to demonstrate the interrelatedness of knowl- 
edge, Florida Presbyterian College asks every 
student to take at least one course which all 
students in his year are taking. These are the 
core courses taught co-operatively by pro- 
fessors from art, biology, economics, history, 
physics, political science, psychology, religion, 
and sociology. In these, students pursue with 
the group and on their own a critical under- 
standing of the major attempts of man to 
interpret his purpose and to organize his 
experience through the analytic and histo- 
rical studv of works and institutions. 





Studies Abroad 

To increase in our students opportunities 
for self -directed study and a sense of world 
community, Florida Presbyterian College ar- 
ranges studies abroad during the Winter 
Term, the summer, and the junior year. 
Students travel in groups and singly with 
projects for study planned in advance. The 
College co-operates with other schools here 
and abroad, tests the language proficiency 
of students for the project undertaken, and 
evaluates their accomplishments upon their 
return to the campus. 



Senior Seminar 

During his senior year, every student 
takes a seminar in his major field. Upon 
recommendation of their major professor, 
seniors may elect to pursue an independent 
program of study and research in addition 
to or in lieu of the senior seminar. They 
present the results of their work in a thesis. 



Winter Term 

The Winter Term is a special four-week 
period of independent study for all under- 
graduates. It comes between the fall semes- 
ter, which begins early in September, and 



the spring semester, which begins early in 
February. With examinations for the fall 
semester over before the Christmas holidays, 
January is free for intensive study. Design- 
ed to develop the qualities of self-discipline 
in pursuits requiring the student to be the 
prime explorer, the Winter Term asks him 
to work without the customary routine of 
classroom and lecture hall on a single prob- 
lem growing out of his other studies and to 
present his findings in final form. With 
guidance he chooses and limits his subject, 
gathers material, organizes it, and presents 
it as a paper, a short story, a painting, a 
piece of laboratory apparatus. During this 
special semester, each professor directs the 
activities of about fifteen students. A stu- 
dent selects a professor to work under ; some- 
times the group works co-operatively on 
topics or problems announced in advance, and 
sometimes they work separately. Through- 
out the four weeks, the professor is available 
for consultation and guidance. This intensive, 
independent study supplements the extensive 
work of the courses and thus affords unusual 
opportunity for the student each of his four 
years to engage in extended, creative work 
not normally afforded in traditional under- 
graduate curriculums. Through the Winter 
Term at Florida Presbyterian College, the 
student not only works on his own to master 
a limited subject but may have the benefit 
of step-by-step evaluation of his work. 





Independent Study 



Proficiency rather than fulfillment of 
course requirements is the measure of ac- 
complishment and admission to advanced 
studies. Thus performance (e.g., on place- 
ment tests) rather than credit previously 
earned admits students to advanced work in 
the core courses, languages, sciences, and 
mathematics and determines progress toward 
a degree. In many areas, students can work 
independently, preparing themselves for ad- 
vanced standing, doing research, and writing 
papers, and receive recognition for their 
work without attending lectures and classes. 
Hence a student may accelerate his educa- 
tion during the school year and the summer 
months at home according to his capabilities 
and secure the full recognition for work done 
independently which course credit normally 
certifies. 



Size of Classes 

Florida Presbyterian College has few 
middle-sized classes. They are either large 
enough to encourage independent work and 
the exchange of ideas within the whole com- 
munity or small enough to permit discussions 
in which learners (that is, both teacher and 
students) explore, debate, and form conclu- 
sions together. Both large and small groups 
place increasing responsibility on the student 
and give him two different kinds of expe- 
rience in learning. The large course contri- 
butes to the idea of community by assembling 
all students of a given year for lectures, 
panels, demonstrations, movies, and concerts 
and by providing small groups where stu- 
dents test their personal reactions against 
those of their fellows in a free forum.

The Language Laboratory 

A primary objective of studying a modern 
foreign language is learning to speak and 
understand it. The language laboratory facil- 
itates this aspect of learning through aural- 
oral practice that the conventional classroom 
does not provide. The laboratory at Florida 
Presbyterian College is of the newest design. 
It operates thirty-five positions by remote 
control so that the student can work inde- 
pendently or as a member of a class. By 
merely dialing an appropriate number, the 
student can hear an instructional tape, re- 
cord his own responses, and play it back for 
comparison and corrections. As many as a 
hundred different tapes are available to the 
student at any time. 



The Reading Program 

Reading ability and effective study go 
hand in hand; usually a good student reads 
well. Hence Florida Presbyterian College of- 
fers a reading program for all students to 
improve their reading. This program is not 
only for students deficient in reading ability 
but also for good students. Often superior 
students can become even more efficient by 
increasing their reading rate; the best stu- 
dents often make phenomenal improvement. 
Our reading laboratory is well equipped, con- 
taining rate pacers, tachistoscopes, a con- 
trolled reader, and a library of reading texts. 
This laboratory provides both group work 
and attention to individual needs. With some 
suggestions and guidance from the instructor, 
the student works as independently as pos- 
sible. A proficiency test is administered to 
all freshmen and transfer students. On the 
basis of this and other tests they learn 
whether they should work on special read- 
ing skills, or whether, though their reading 
is above average, they can profit by increas- 
ing their rate. Throughout their four years 
students can receive help in achieving effi- 
cient reading rates necessary to enable them 
to master the heavy reading assignments of 
our program.

The Writing Laboratory 

Since academic success depends in great 
measure upon the written word, Florida Pres- 
byterian College emphasizes a high degree 
of proficiency in writing both in the selec- 
tion of its students and in determining their 
progress. The College looks for students who 
do not require training in writing in a formal 
course of composition. It makes heavy de- 
mands upon them in their writing. Students 
learn to expect criticism from all their pro- 
fessors on their written work and help in 
planning papers and achieving effective style. 
In addition some staff members are available 
to help students overcome individual weak- 
nesses. The writing laboratory enables stu- 
dents to form efficient procedures by provid- 
ing a workshop for writing with a faculty 
consultant and appropriate reference books. 



The William Luther Cobb 
Library 

Because the liberal-arts college must be a 
reading college, the library is the center of 
the academic program. With our emphasis 
upon independent work, the library, gift of 
Mr. and Mrs. William Luther Cobb of Tarpon 
Springs, Florida, is the primary instrument 
in the educational process, the storehouse of 
the information, opinions, and techniques 
necessary to a liberal education. Through 
open shelves and collections maintained in 
each dormitory, students have easy access 
to many books. The library not only supplies 
materials for reference, req" ired reading, 
and research papers but also compiles biblio- 
graphies, prepares exhibits, and promotes 
interest in reading. 

The initial ten year goal of the William 
Luther Cobb Library is 100,000 volumes. 
Presently there are 40,000 catalogued vol- 
umes in our library.

The Science Laboratories 

A student in the natural sciences has 
opportunity to undertake laboratory practice 
and research. Manual exercises and routine 
experiments (which are not experiments at 
all but repetitions) are minimized. Emphasis 
is rather on the student's acquiring the abil- 
ity to understand theory and experimenta- 
tion, exploring the appropriateness of meth- 
ods and evaluating design and techniques. 
The small laboratory becomes the place for 
group discussion and provides occasion for 
exchange of ideas and procedures among 
students. 

Natural and man-made laboratories com- 
bine to provide varied off-campus scientific 
study in the College's immediate area. The 
climate allows year-round field work in na- 
tural laboratories such as lakes, bays, and 
land-area communities, and students can ap- 
ply their knowledge of chemistry, physics, 
and biology to aquatic environments under 
a continuing research program. There is also 
a high concentration of excellently staffed 
laboratories nearby concerned with electron- 
ics, nuclear physics, and chemistry in many 
private and governmental research facilities 
in the area.

The Studios 

The practice of art and of music flourishes 
in the studios of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege. Here students may receive professional 
guidance individually or in groups of various 
sizes, or they may pursue independently 
the mastery of techniques. In the art studio 
a student works in many media. In the music 
studio he may study voice or the instrument 
of his choice. As a result of their studio work, 
students periodically offer exhibits of their 
paintings, prints, and sculptures and present 
recitals to the College community and friends. 
In its emphasis upon the activities of the 
studios, the College encourages its students' 
personal involvement with the materials of 
the creative and performing arts.

Tcchmcal Studies 



This is the basic curriculum, the minimum 
required program of the College. Students 
working with their advisers build on it, 
adding to it, adapting it to their abilities 
and needs. It gives them a choice of languages 
and sciences, a choice between mathematics 
(on several levels) and logic. In addition their 
proficiencies give them scope in 

a. Language. Students must demonstrate 
competence in speaking, reading, and 
writing a foreign language and be fa- 
miliar with the culture of the country 
to which the language is native. Com- 
petence sometimes is achieved through 



two college years of study following 
two years of high-school study in the 
same language. 

b. Mathematics and logic. Students take 
whatever mathematics they are ready 
for, or logic, in either the freshman 
or sophomore year. 

c. Courses in the major. By postponing 
mathematics or logic or a natural 
science to the sophomore year, students 
may begin work in their major field 
as freshmen. The several fields of 
major study stipulate various require- 
ments (see Courses of Instruction pp. 
41).

Divisional and 
Interdivisional Majors 

Students may pursue a divisional or 
interdivisional major consisting of ten 
or more courses of which four to six 
will represent concentration in one 
discipline with the additional courses 
related to this core. 



(Courses in Education leading to a teach- 
ing certificate at the secondary level are 
offered in conjunction with majors.) 

The curriculum also provides specific 
preparation courses for graduate work in 
specialized fields, including law, medicine, 
and the ministry. 

d. Other courses. The College accepts and 
endorses the policy general in Ameri- 
can education that a liberal-arts pro- 
gram includes studies in the three 
principal divisions. Yet it does not ac- 
cept the standard procedure of pre- 
scribing a certain number of courses 
in other than the major departments 
because it tends to an accumulation of 
courses not in any deep sense relevant 
to the intelligent development of the 
particular student or to his major 
course of study. Accordingly, it has 
established a policy of making the 
course of study unified for individual 
development and interests. The College 
does not specify attention to other 
fields as a given number of courses 
but rather as a plan involving a stu- 
dent's unique experiences of program- 
med special readings connected with 
his main interest, of independent 
study, or of other devices. The prin- 
ciple operative in each case is that the 
plan of study be coherent and orderly 
and not defined as formal course 
credits.

Curriculum for Applied 
Science and Engineering 

Florida Presbyterian College offers a bac- 
calaureate program in applied science and 
engineering. Members of the class of 1966 
who entered college in September 1962 are 
eligible to major in this program designed to 
provide a technical education in the context 
of the general College requirements. 

The engineering student studies the hu- 
manities and social sciences through the core 
curriculum and elective courses and obtains 
a high level of proficiency in a foreign lan- 
guage. Many of his courses are in mathe- 
matics and the basic sciences. Courses in the 
engineering fields will be modern in content 
with relatively little emphasis on the tech- 
niques now relegated to the technical aide 
or assistant. Through the Winter Term and 
the emphasis on independent study the stu- 
dent develops his creative abilities. 

The program offers two majors in the 
beginning phase, electronic engineering and 
mechanical engineering. The third and fourth 
years introduce technical studies, and the 
fifth year is devoted to them. The curriculum 
of each student will be designed to meet all 
accrediting requirements and to meet the 
needs of each student. 



Degrees 

Florida Presbyterian College awards the 
degrees of Bachelor of Arts to students in 
the Humanities and the Social Sciences and 
Bachelor of Science to students in Mathe- 
matics and Natural Sciences. Students in the 
Curriculum of Applied Science and Engineer- 
ing earn the degree of Bachelor of Science 
at the end of four years and then the degree 
of Bachelor of Engineering upon satisfactory 
completion of the fifth year. 

Requirements for Degrees 

In the basic curriculum of 36 courses, 4 
Winter Terms and 4 semesters of Physical 
Education the College looks for: 

a. The experience of the genex-al, inter- 
disciplinary core courses, 

b. a grasp of the fundamental methods 
and concepts in the humanities, social 

sciences, and physical sciences, 

c. proficiency in a language other than 
the student's native language, 

d. competence in a major field of study, 

e. participation and achievements in phy- 
sical education, 

f. achievement in independent study, par- 

ticularly in the Winter Term, 

g. ability to speak and write English ef- 
fectively and correctly, 

h. proficiency in reading skills and com- 
prehension.

Grades and Their Meaning 

The evaluation of academic progress at 
Florida Presbyterian College rests on a stu- 
dent's response to educational opportunity 
rather than on the fulfillment of an arbitrary 
set of course requirements. Our standards 
emphasize quality rather than quantity, and 
our rewards and awards are for outstanding 
and creative work. To emphasize the greater 
importance of intellectual achievement than 
of grades, Florida Presbyterian College uses 
grades only for advisory purposes and for 
the transfer of credit to other institutions. 
In advising students, we use the grades of 
H (honors), S (satisfactory), and U (un- 
satisfactory) . 

After College 

Education at Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege has been designed to be complete in it- 
self as well as a starting point for a continu- 
ing search for truth. 

By its nature, it will prove an excellent 
training base for those who wish to pursue 
advanced academic training in a specialized 



field. We expect a substantial number of 
our graduates to go on to some advanced 

study in education, medicine, law, the 

ministry, the sciences, the humanities, en- 
gineering, the social sciences, and other fields. 

To assist students in obtaining perma- 
nent positions after graduation, we shall have 
a placement office to arrange visits for com- 
panies and agencies seeking personal inter- 
views with our students. In addition, the 
Placement Office will undertake special ac- 
tivities to assist those graduates who seek 
opportunities in teaching. 

A continuing program of alumni parti- 
cipation is to be established, and close contact 
with alumni is planned through various pub- 
lications, personal visits, seminars, class re- 
unions, a continuing study program, and 
other means. This College will endeavor to 
continue, as it did during the undergraduate 
years, to serve as a great stimulus to the 
men and women who came to it seeking an 
education of high quality and who have left 
as mature, responsible people capable of 
leadership.

Campus Life 




Florida Presbyterian College provides a 
residential student life, most of its under- 
graduates living on campus. The young men 
and women in residence learn from their 
friends and associates, acquire understand- 
ing, leadership, and tolerance, and practice 
free, democratic choice of action. Our non- 
resident students participate in all campus 
functions in every way possible. All students 
become involved in and identified with the 
academic community as a whole. 

The community center of the College is 
the College Union ; it is for all members of 
the college family — students, faculty, admin- 
istration, alumni and guests. It is not just a 
building or group of buildings ; it is an or- 
ganization and a program. The Union has 
been called the "living room" of the college 
and as such it is the hub around which re- 
volves the social life of the institution. All 
students receive automatic membership in 
the College Union upon registration. 



Honor System 



Student government is an important part 
of campus life at the College. Collective action 
by undergraduates in self-government is vital 
to the College program. Basic thereto is the 
Honor System, enforced by the students 
themselves. All student activity, academic 
and social, presupposes it. Predicated on 
Christian values, in its practice it contributes 
to the development of emerging, mature hu- 
man beings. The College encourages a full, 
satisfying, and meaningful campus life in- 
volving all students, and they organize and 
conduct social functions, publications, intra- 
mural sports, organizations, and special 
events like concerts. 



21 




Counseling 

Each student meets a faculty adviser 
during the summer Pre-College Conference. 
The day before the opening of Fall Semester, 
the adviser prepares his students for the 
College program. He schedules periodic con- 
ferences during the year with each student 
and is available for additional meetings upon 
request. Faculty advisers form an integral 
part of the counseling program, and through 
his adviser every student has access to every 
special program and assistance likely to make 
college life meaningful and enjoyable. 

The College compiles much information 
concerning students during the course of ad- 
mission: strengths, weaknesses, interests, 
aptitudes, and the like. The Director of Coun- 



seling uses such information in choosing the 
most appropriate adviser for each student. 
He gives both the adviser and the resident 
counselor relevant information. Thus rather 
than being merely one of the herd, each stu- 
dent is a distinct person with his individual 
problems and potentialities. 

Through the resident counselor, faculty 
adviser, or any faculty or staff member or 
through his own efforts, a student may seek 
and learn ways to get additional assistance 
for making the most of his college experience. 
A professional counseling service is available 
on a confidential basis to students with per- 
sonal problems. And a vocational-guidance 
program assists students in academic and 
vocational planning. 



22 



Religious Life 




The religious program of Florida Pres- 
byterian College is ecumenical, organized as 
the Student Christian Association (SCA). Its 
mission is to focus the Christian faith in the 
academic community. To this end, the SCA 
constantly strives toward the following: 
a persistent, prayerful search for the 

meaning of the Christian faith; 
a conscious effort to discern God's pur- 
pose for each person especially as it 
relates to his vocation; 
a fellowship of the academic community 
joined in a common worship and the 
search for truth; 
a continuous appraisal of the community 
to help keep the Christian faith central 
in our search for truth; 
a conscious concern for the life and mis- 
sion of the Ecumenical Church and en- 
couragement of responsible participa- 
tion in its members. 
The basis for the program is worship. 



Being within the Protestant tradition, all 
aspects of our program are voluntary. The 
chaplain and choir conduct four worship ser- 
vices weekly for the community. The wor- 
ship committee of the SCA conducts evening 
prayers three times a week. Through design- 
ing and conducting worship, students have 
the opportunity of understanding better the 
meaning of worship. After Evening Prayer 
on Sunday, the SCA conducts its general 
program of the week. During the week, the 
SCA sponsors small study groups. Faculty 
members conduct general discussions in the 
dormitories. The SCA program deals with 
the teachings of the Church and encompasses 
campus, community, national, and interna- 
tional problems. Students also have an op- 
portunity to take part in regional and nation- 
al conferences and ecumenical work camps. 
The program of Florida Presbyterian College 
helps the student to an intelligent and re- 
sponsible Christianity in all areas of Me.

Medical Services 

Students have medical attention and ser- 
vices throughout the academic year. A reg- 
istered nurse is on hand and a physician 
available at all- times on a consulting basis. 
Those cases that cannot be treated in the 
college's own well-equipped infirmary will be 
referred to either of two excellent hospitals 
in the City of St. Petersburg. 



Sports for All 

In addition to the required physical edu- 
cation for freshmen and sophomores, an in- 
tegral part of the curriculum, the College 
conducts an intensive program in intramural 
sports of all kinds for both men and women, 
with emphasis on such water sports as swim- 
ming, boating, sailing, water skiing, and skin 
diving. There is also an intercollegiate sports 
program at FPC. 




Concerts 

Students in the Chapel Choir, the Concert 
Choir, and the Sandpipers make their own 
music and give frequent concerts around the 
state of Florida. Periodically, College instru- 
mentalists and singers and visiting artists 
give recitals of chamber music and solos on 
campus. 

The College sponsors an annual series 
of concerts. The 1963-64 program included 
Roberta Peters, Senator Wayne Morse, The 
Bach Aria Group, Phillip Gehring, The Hous- 
ton Symphony, Tossy Spivakovsky and The 
Roger Wagner Choral. Upon request students 
are given tickets to each performance. 

In the city, two symphony orchestras, an 
opera group, a woodwind quintet, two concert 
series, and a string quartet offer numerous 
programs.

Lectures 

The core curriculum, the academic soc- 
ieties, forums, and clubs of the College bring 
guest speakers throughout the year. Certain 
of these lectures are designed to meet the 
need of specific groups; others are. open to 
the general public. 



Films 

About once a month the College runs a 
movie chosen for any reason that makes it 
excellent: its plot, its photography, its di- 
rection, its acting, its technical innovations, 
its humor, its topical interest. Films in this 
series are supplemented by pictures shown 
by College departments, divisions, the core 



program, and the Student Activities Com- 
mittee. 

Dramatic Activities 

Dramatics is for the many, not the few, 
at Florida Presbyterian College. Although 
there are major productions each semester 
for experienced actors and the intei-ested and 
ambitious, many students who can spare only 
a limited amount of time have the oppor- 
tunity to take part in dramatic reading every 
two or three weeks. Dramatic productions 
also play a part in course work, for at least 
once a semester students present a play 
during the regular lecture hour for the core 
program. 



25 



Societies 

The Social Science Forum, open to stu- 
dents majoring or especially interested in 
Economics, History, Political Science, Psy- 
chology, and Sociology or Anthropology, 
seeks to stimulate student interest in grad- 
uate work and professional opportunties, in 
part through discussions of controversial 
and interdisciplinary materials. 

Foreign Language clubs promote interest, 
understanding and appreciation of the lan- 
guage, literature, and culture of the countries 
involved. 

The Chemistry Club affords an oppor- 
tunity for students of chemistry to become 
better acquainted, to secure experience in 
preparing and presenting technical material 
before chemical audiences, to foster a profes- 
sional pride in chemistry. 




Publications 

The Trident is the student newspaper 
published weekly. Incite is a literary maga- 
zine appearing once or twice a semester. 
Students also publish the annual FPC Hand- 
book, the publication designed for new stu- 
dents at the College. The first college year- 
book was published in 1964 and one will be 
published annually by a student staff. 



Freshman Admission 

In admitting students, this College con- 
siders past academic performance in mathe- 
matics, science, literature, language, and 
social studies ; achievement on examinations ; 
and personal qualifications such as character, 
range of interest, poise, maturity, and per- 
sonal development. It emphasizes the stu- 
dent's ability to profit from and contribute 
to the learning community. Anyone deemed 
undesirable because of his conduct and char- 
acter may be refused admission (or, as a 
student, may be requested to withdraw from 
the College at any time).

This Is The Admissions 
Procedure: 

a. Early in his senior year in high school, 
a candidate should write to the Director of 
Admissions, Florida Presbyterian College, for 
an application form and a transcript form. 
A formal application for admission, along 
with an application fee of $10, should be 
completed and returned to the Director of 
Admissions. (The fee is not refundable.) 
The applicant should request the principal 
of the high school from which he is to be 
graduated to send a transcript of his record 
to the Director of Admissions of Florida 
Presbyterian College. 

b. Applicants must arrange to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test and the writing 
sample offered by the College Entrance Ex- 
amination Board. The results of the tests 
and a copy of the writing sample should be 
submitted to the Director of Admissions of 
the College. It is recommended that the ap- 
plicant take his Scholastic Aptitude Test in 
December of his senior year. Scores from the 
January, March, and May dates are accept- 
able ; however, the results from the Decem- 
ber testing are preferred. The Preliminary 
Scholastic Aptitude Test taken during the 
junior year is helpful. 

Florida Presbyterian College highly rec- 
ommends, but does not require, that applic- 
ants take the following Achievement Tests: 
Intermediate or Advanced Mathematics and 
English, selected from twelve choices. Test- 
ing centers throughout the country give 
these at specified times. At least six weeks 
before the date of the test, the candidate 
should apply directly to the College Entrance 
Examination Board, Box 592, Princeton, New 
Jersey. The Board sends an information book- 
let giving full details about testing centers

Advanced Placement Program courses 
will be honored at Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege on the basis of scores on the Advanced 
Placement Examinations administered by the 
College Entrance Examination Board. Scores 
of three, four, and five will automatically 
certify the student in the course covered by 
the examination. 

The applicant for admission to the Fresh- 
man class must have completed the gradua- 
tion requirements and demonstrated acade- 
mic competence in a high school or prepar- 
atory school accredited by a state or regional 
accrediting agency. Even though the acad- 
emic record will not be judged primarily on 
specific units of work, certain courses are 
strongly recommended: four years of En- 
glish, three years of mathematics, two years 
of language, one year of history, and one year 
(preferably two) of science. 

The Admissions Office will compile com- 
plete information on each applicant for ad- 
mission, including the original request for 
admission information, transcripts from the 
applicant's high school or preparatory school, 
test scores, personal recommendations, and 
any other pertinent data. This file forms the 
basis for selection of candidates by the Ad- 
mission Committee each year. 



27 



Transfer Admission 

A student at another college or university- 
wishing to transfer to Florida Presbyterian 
College must complete the requirements for 
admission already listed and submit a tran- 
script of his college record with a catalogue 
and a statement from the college of his aca- 
demic standing and personal qualifications. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may sub- 
mit these scores or arrange to retake this 
examination. If the applicant has not taken 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test he must arrange 
to do so. All applicants must submit results 
of the Scholastic Aptitude Test to the Di- 
rector of Admissions of Florida Presbyterian 
College. 

Transfer of credits from other institutions 
approved by the Regional Accrediting Agen- 
cy depends upon the correspondence of the 
courses to those offered at Florida Presby- 
terian College and the approval of the aca- 
demic division concerned. Grades below C 
are not acceptable for transfer. 

Students transferring into Florida Pres- 
byterian College at the Junior level are ex- 
pected to take five courses each semester 
during their Junior and Senior years 

Special Admission 

Some students academically too advanced 
for further high school study or over twenty- 
one years of age, may have the entrance re- 



quirements waived. The Admissions Commit- 
tee considers such cases individually. 

Candidates Reply 

All candidates (including financial aid 
applicants) will deposit $50 with the Director 
of Admissions by May 1 if admitted prior to 
that date. Applicants admitted after May 1 
will be expected to make this deposit within 
two weeks after acceptance. This money, 
though not refundable, is applied toward the 
student's tuition upon enrollment. 

The applicant will receive a form for a 
medical examination to be completed by a 
physician within the three months preceding 
matriculation, and to reach the Director of 
Admissions by August 20. 

Each freshman attends an interesting, 
informative, and productive three-day orien- 
tation conference held during the summer 
prior to enrollment and has a choice of ses- 
sions, spaced throughout the summer, to 
make attendance convenient. Each confer- 
ence is designed to afford ample opportunity 
for meeting the college staff and other stu- 
dents. Activities such as pre-registration, 
book purchases, room assignment, course 
counseling, and general college orientation, 
in addition to vocational guidance tests and 
placement tests, prepare both students and 
staff for the year's work. The expense of 
this conference is included in tuition and fees.

Costs 

A college education of high intellectual 
challenge is of lasting value and like most 
things of value is costly. Only ignorance is 
more so. Private, non-tax-supported institu- 
tions like Florida Presbyterian College make 
every effort to keep the cost of education 
down. As a result the student pays only a 
portion of the actual bill for his own educa- 
tion.

**Cost per year for a double air-conditioned 
room. A single air-conditioned room is 
$400.00 per year. The air-conditioning will 
be in operation during the months of Sep- 
tember, October, November, March, April 
and May. The college assumes no liability 
for utility breakdown over which it has no 
control. 

***College policy requires all students to 
carry accident and health insurance. The 
above rate covers students for only the 
school year. 



Music Fees 

Private intruction in music is approxi- 
mately $150.00 per year for one hour a week 
and $90.00 per year for one-half hour. 

Financing Your Education 

Generally, half of the total cost, minus a 
$50 acceptance fee and any room deposits, 
is due at entrance in September and the rest 
January 15. Matriculation is a contract bind- 
ing the student (and his parents) for tuition, 
fees, room, and board for the entire term. 



The college has many different ways to fi- 
nance your education. The Director of Ad- 
missions will send a list of scholarships and 
loans upon request. The College co-operates 
with insurance and tuition-plan companies to 
make available to parents various programs 
for financing educational expenses. 




On-Campus Employment 

Many part-time jobs are available: in 
dining rooms, offices, laboratories, library, 
bookstore, swimming pool. They pay about 
$250 a year for a ten-hour week. Though 
off-campus part-time work is also available, 
the day of full time earning while learning 
is about over. It is recommended that fresh- 
men not undertake part-time employment. 

Loans 

All students ought to consider borrowing 
money for a college education. Student loans 
are good business: a college education con- 
siderably increases earning power, many 
loans require little or no deferred interest, 
and some need not be repaid in full. The 
college has endowed loan funds and partici- 
pates in the National Defense Education 
Loan Program.

Core of a College 



In no other area was so much painstaking 
care and concern evidenced at Florida Pres- 
byterian College as in the selection of its 
faculty — the heartbeat of any such institu- 
tion. Regardless of status or tenure, every 
faculty member finally selected combines 
scholarship and teaching to an extraordinary 
degree. 

The criteria for acceptance, as set forth 
by the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher 
with depth and command in his field of 
specialization and a breadth of cultural back- 
ground enabling him to relate his own dis- 



cipline to the totality of experience ; who 
demonstrates personal and professional com- 
petence and growth through research, pub- 
lication, and professional participation; who 
inspires students with his respect for his 
profession by his ability, his character, and 
his conduct; who has the ability himself to 
think creatively and objectively and to in-

The New Campus 

In 1961 the Florida Presbyterian College 
campus was only an image in the mind's eye. 
Today — some five and a half million dollars 
and three years later, a striking 275-acre 
educational site graces the southwest tip of 
the St. Petersburg peninsula. Located on 
U.S. Highway 19 and 54th Avenue South, a 
quarter-mile from the famous Sunshine Sky- 
way, this is believed to be the only bayfront 
campus in the United States. 

Beginning in fall, 1962, the Maritime Base 
(interim home of F.P.C.) in downtown St. 
Petersburg underwent partial evacuation 
when first-phase construction of the new 
campus was completed. When the remaining 
facilities moved to the new campus in Janu- 
ary, 1964, the dual-campus arrangement 
ended, and another milestone passed in the 
life of the College. 

The following facilities have been com- 
pleted toward a $16-18 million dollar con- 
struction plan and represent approximately 
five and a half million dollars of that total : 

The William Luther Cobb Library, gift 
of Mr. and Mrs. William Luther Cobb, Tarpon 
Springs, is designed initially to hold 100,000 
volumes. 

Five clusters of dormitories represent 
twenty-five buildings which house 685 stu- 
dents and five residence counselors. 



The Dendy-McNair Teaching Auditorium 
and Humanities Classroom Building are 
units of the Humanities Complex. The audi- 
torium, used mainly for mass lectures given 
in connection with the College's core pro- 
gram, is a gift of the First Presbyterian 
Church, Orlando, and the classroom building 
was made possible through an anonymous 
gift. 

The Forrer Language Center, which com- 
pletes the Humanities Complex, was a gift 
from Mr. and Mrs. Samuel H. Forrer of Lake- 
land. 

A dining unit is centrally located in the 
dormitory area. 

The Science Complex, like all academic 
clusters, has three wings — a teaching audi- 
torium, biology lab building, and chemistry 
and physics lab building. 

The Helen and Cecil Webb Health Center, 
a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Webb of 
Tampa, will provide offices and equipment 
for medical care of the college community. 

Athletic facilities include an AAU swim- 
ming pool, baseball field, tennis courts, and 
the first two holes of a nine-hole golf course. 




Courses of 
Instruction 




Courses of Instruction 



Introduction 



The number of each course conveys the following information: 

Courses number 100 to 199 are primarily for freshmen, 200 to 299 for 
sophomores, 300 to 399 and 400 to 499 for juniors and seniors. Courses 
offered only in alternate years are indicated by "a" (for school years 
beginning in even-numbered years) and "b" (for school years beginning 
in odd-numbered years). In general, an odd number indicates that the 
course is given in the first semester ; and even number indicates that 
the course is given in the second semester. 

Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their 
faculty advisers. Near the close of the school year each freshman is ex- 
pected to prepare a tentative course program for the remaining three 
years of college and to present it to his adviser for critical evaluation and 
counsel. At the end of the second year of study each student must submit 
for approval to the Committee on Academic Review his projected program. 
A student may revise his program at any time thereafter with the ap- 
proval of a major professor. 

The courses are listed as core courses, which all students take, and 
according to academic divisions and academic disciplines or fields of study 
within each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture- 
discussion periods per week supplemented by other periods, studios, or 
laboratories. 

Course descriptions are not given for the Special Topics and Senior 
Seminars because a professor is free to vary his offerings each year ac- 
cording to student interest and his own study and research. Students 
receiving the endorsement of the professors in their major field may take 
the equivalent of two courses each semester during their junior and senior 
years in a program of guided independent study and research. 



42 



Core Courses 

The basic objective is to develop within the college community a critical 
understanding of some of the major attempts of man to interpret his 
experience through the analytic and historical study of works and insti- 
tutions. Throughout, the concern is with the relevance of the Judeo- 
Christian tradition and of the redemptive message of the Bible in human 
inquiry. The course thus forms the basis for the total educational process 
at Florida Presbyterian College. Students participate in large and small 
groups: three lectures and two hour-and-a-half discussions during the 
first .two years ; two lectures in the third year and one hour-and-a-half 
discussion ; one lecture and one two-hour discussion in the fourth year.

Languages and Literature 

Requirements for a Major: Students may major in (1) a single lan-

language or other languages or in General Literature or (2) General Lit- 
erature with advanced work in (a) one or more foreign languages or (b) 
in English and American Literature. The junior and senior courses (301, 
302, and 401, 402, and 431, 432) are required for a major. Reading in 
General Literature is in the English language or in a foreign language 
in which the student has demonstrated proficiency. Requirements for a 
Major: a balanced program in criticism, composition, literary history, 
and language. 

Foreign Languages 

CHINESE (projected), FRENCH, GERMAN, GREEK, LATIN, 
RUSSIAN, SPANISH. 

Instruction in foreign language consists of classroom and laboratory 
work. Elementary and intermediate courses train in grammar, vocabulary, 
pronunciation, composition, and reading. The progression is from aural 
comprehension to oral expression to reading and writing. Courses 101 
through 302 deal with all these elements in order of increasing difficulty. 
Proficiency in reading, writing, and (in modern languages) conversation 
— not the completion of a program of studies — is the measure of accom- 
plishment and admission to advanced studies. The third-year literature 
course requires a reading knowledge of the language and in appropriate 
cases the ability to converse. The readings course (401, 402) and the 
Senior Seminar (431, 432) are designed each semester to meet students' 
needs and proficiencies. They may deal with authors, genres, movements, 
or works. They are open in appropriate cases to nonmajors wishing to 
read the literature in translation.
